Hopes and predictions for Pokemon 2019

So… We’ve battled through the storm that was the year of “Wait that’s not a mainline game! Or is it? What is that.” and come out the other side stronger, albeit slightly battered.

Joking aside, Pokemon Let’s Go was actually a fun game, and much better designed than a lot of us expected.
As for whether that makes it a mainline game or not, I… I honestly still don’t know. Like, does anyone really know? I know Gamefreak says it is one, but is that just a marketing gimmick or… Okay we’re getting sidetracked here. Continue reading Hopes and predictions for Pokemon 2019

Precursorgames Game Awards 2018

Hard to believe a full year has gone by, but hey, here we are, about to start the first annual Precursorgames Game Awards (a better name will have to be made some time).
We are undoubtedly living in a golden age of gaming, what with the Switch and PS4 offering masterpieces on nearly a six month basis, its madness! And I am so here for it.

Of course, I didn’t get to play anywhere near all of the best releases this year (I still haven’t played God of War or Spiderman).
Now, because of this, and because I simply can’t play everything in a year, we’re not going to be sticking exclusively to games that released in 2018. Continue reading Precursorgames Game Awards 2018

A returning player’s perspective on League of Legends in 2018

I used to play a lot of League of Legends back in the day. Like… A lot. Way too much. As I’m sure happens for many people, it became a bit of a problem, and I had to dial it back in order to get my life back in order.
I did this gradually, and eventually quit and didn’t touch it for years… Until a week or two ago. Continue reading A returning player’s perspective on League of Legends in 2018

Why is everyone so mad at Blizzard? The Diablo Immortal disaster

Blizzard just held their annual Blizzon, at which they made several announcements regarding updates to their games. A new Overwatch character, new cards for Hearthstone, you know the drill.
But then of course, to close out the show, they rile up excitement for one more big announcement.
At this point, journalists and fans alike are all anticipating the same thing; Diablo 4.  Continue reading Why is everyone so mad at Blizzard? The Diablo Immortal disaster

The Discord game store is fantastic, but has one pretty major problem

If you were to sit me down and ask me what my favourite company currently going was, I would wholeheartedly tell you that it is Discord.
The way they operate, joke about, provide clear updates, and most of all, the product they provide. All of these add up to a company I feel good about supporting in any and all ways.

I say this because I’m about to throw a negative their way, and I want to be clear that it’s only because I love them, and want their service and product to be the very best it can be.  Continue reading The Discord game store is fantastic, but has one pretty major problem

Yokai Watch 3 releases in Europe on December 7th!

It’s official, we’ve got a release date! Yokai Watch 3 officially launches in Europe on December 7th, which is for whatever reason, a couple of months ahead of the US (they get it on February 8th).
Oddly, this is the first time we’ve gotten a Yokai Watch main series release anywhere near the US (we’re usually a year behind in Europe). Perhaps they felt bad and wanted to make amends. Continue reading Yokai Watch 3 releases in Europe on December 7th!
